Due to noticeable demand for travel to Turkey, Qatar Airways will be introducing three-times-weekly flights to the southern city of Adana on November 6, 2017.
The carrier will deploy an Airbus A320 aircraft on flights between Doha and Adana Şakirpaşa Airport, which boasts 12 seats in business class and 132 sets in economy class
Adana is Turkey’s fifth largest city and a major agricultural and industrial centre. The city is renowned for its delicious Turkish cuisine as well as its historic monuments and architectural landmarks.
Enthusing on the airline’s newest addition was chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, HE Akbar Al Baker: “Qatar Airways’ new service to Adana will help reinforce links between the State of Qatar and the Republic of Turkey and deepen the friendship and cooperation between our two great countries.
“Adana is an agricultural and industrial powerhouse, so our new three-times-a-week service will help boost all-important trade and commercial links between Qatar and Turkey. It will also increase tourism to a city renowned throughout Turkey for its incredible local cuisine which acts as a magnet for food-lovers. We are delighted to connect southern Turkey to more than 150 destinations worldwide through our five-star hub, Hamad International Airport in Qatar,” he added.
The Qatari airline currently serves three destinations in Turkey, with separate services to Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen Airport (twice a day) and Istanbul Ataturk Airport (10 times a week), as well as daily flights to Ankara.
